17 out of 17

This is surely the perfect country pub. I would have rated it 5, except we didn't stay overnight. But for a stop on a Sunday? 17 out of 17! That's how many craft beers are on tap. Would have tried them all, but Highway Patrol takes a dim view of that kind of thing. Publican (unfortunately did not... read more

If you're in Kyneton the Royal George is a must visit! My partner and I have been to the 'George' a dozen times and we love it. Let's start with the beer. The beer is great, they have 17 craft beers on tap that rotates seasonally (you'll never get bored) with a large variety of Australian and international craft beers.... More

We entered the Bar area and were warmly greeted by a female staff member. We ordered some Bar Snacks which came to us quickly. The Salmon Spring Rolls with Wasabi Mayo were delicious and the chips with aioli were crunchy and delicious also. I love the warm feeling of this pub and would not hesitate to return here when next... More

some of the other pubs in town make up for lack of finesse with larger quantities, which i'm sure many locals are happy with. this is proper pub food with the right quantity and a good range of tasty options. beer good, ambiance good

Went here on a cold Wednesday night with a group. We sat in a room with an open fire but it was lacking in atmosphere. Although the food was good, the menu was very limited. The staff were friendly but the service from the kitchen was very slow. (A table of 10 but some had almost finished their main before... More

I have been to Royal George 12 months ago and was one of the best restaurants I had experienced, so when the opportunity arose to take some friends from Melbourne I was excited for another fabulous dinner. We arrived for a 7:30pm booking to find out booking had not been recorded but were given a table anyway. The room was... More

We had our usual family day trip to Kyneton, we saw the Royal Georges beautiful facade and thought we would have a few drinks. The pub is homey and very rustic, the bar is a great place to come and sit down whilst having a proper craft beer. However I was wondering about the styling, some areas are beautiful and... More
